The exhibition ” Homecoming,” which is organized by shaltai editions gallery and SAMPLE gallery, is dedicated to what it means for an artist to go home.
The more mankind develops, the more it is exposed to movement: we go to study in other regions, move away from our parents, choose cities with headquarters of big companies to build a career, go away for the winter
to warmer climes.
In the context of impermanence and movement, the end of the year brings a person back to his or her starting point.
In Russian and Western cultures, the New Year and Christmas holidays are considered a period of family reunion. Artists have created circulating works that reflect what the road home means to them. For some, this journey takes place through the context of the world today, some authors have presented nostalgic works relating to the homes of their childhood, and for others, going home has become a metaphor for returning to oneself.
The pilgrimage to home, or the impossibility of returning to it, is the theme of the exhibition’s exploration.
